The derma roller is a convenient multipurpose device used for the treatment of various skin conditions such as wrinkles, scars, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, cellulite and stretch marks.
The derma roller is a cylindrical barrel with precision engineered titanium micro needles, which penetrate the top layers of skin without causing damage or bleeding. This is a completely safe treatment that has accurate and superficial penetration into the skin. This allows much higher absorption of serums and creams. It can also stimulate skin’s self-repair and regeneration as it can stimulate the skin’s healing response.
The concept of Skin Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage, such as cuts, burns and other abrasions. Immediately after an injury occurs to the skin, our body reuses the damaged collagen and elastin fibres as well as other damaged skin components to produce new ones. Skin Needling allows for controlled stimulation of the skin’s self-repair mechanism by creating micro-“injuries” in the skin which trigger new collagen production, yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring. Skin Needling provides results similar to Laser Resurfacing and Chemical Peels but at a fraction of the cost and with minimal or zero downtime.
It also works well in conjunction with other wrinkle reduction treatments such as Botox and Fillers but can also act as a great alternative to Botox as it does not involve injecting any agents into the skin.
Here at the studio we use only derma rollers made from titanium, which is an extremely hard metal that does not pit or become damaged like stainless steel after use. This means that there is no tearing of the skin, which could cause scarring.
The derma roller is also the most cost-effective way of effective skin regeneration when compared to other therapies. The derma roller is a breakthrough tool, simple in design and yet giving superb results. It has been hailed as “The magic wand of skin care”.
